Book Signing & 'O-Fish-AL'Book Launch Party Sept. 3rd
August 27, 2004
Troll's new book - Rapture of the Deep: the Art of Ray Troll - published by The University of California Press is a collection of some of his best-known art along with many images never published.
Quoting a book description provided by The University of California Press, Rapture of the Deep: the Art of Ray Troll makes powerful connections between biological diversity, the evolution of life on earth, and the careless habits of people. Rapture of the Deep celebrates Troll's vision with legendary works including "Spawn Till You Die," "Life's a Fish and Then You Fry," and "Bassackwards," in which fish use money, liquor, and literature as bait to lure humans. Troll's running commentary reveals the thought and inspiration behind his art. Writer Brad Matsen, Troll's longtime coconspirator, adds a lively introduction to the art and life of his "sole" brother.
A book signing and 'o-fish-al' launch party is scheduled to take place in Ketchikan at the Soho Coho next Friday , September 3rd from 7pm to 9pm.
